It's Christmas time here in the Seattle Weekly international headquarters, which means food companies have started sending us thank-yous for things we have no idea we've done and fewer immediate plans to do. Today's gift, delivered via FedEx:
Three boxes, all tightly wrapped.
A gallon and a half of packing peanuts.
3 feet of bubble wrap, plus a second layer of plastic wrap. All for...
250 milliliters of liqueur
Some cocoa powder, nutmeg, a marshmallow
One gigantic martini glass
And a card.
Merry Christmas to you, too, Starbucks!
